Sasha Festival 2015 - post 1

When I started bringing Boo along to the festivals I had lots of spare time every evening to write a daily summary post while she was asleep. Now Boo stays up late (much too late this year - boy is she tired now) so my festival evenings are spent having fun with friends. Last year I uploaded a quick photo at the start of each event so that people could still get a little instant gratification festival fix. It worked, but it was also work. This year I've returned to my original format of thematic posts and a slideshow/album, all after the fact. Maybe waaay after the fact, but hopefully worth the wait.

The best part of festivals isn't the Childrens' Fund Auction, the Dress-A-Sasha contest, the sales room, the workshops and presentations, or even the dolls ... all of that will come in future posts. The best part of festivals is the people. See how happy I am to be spending time with these ladies!

With Tina.
With Tina and Melissa.
Can't forget the kiddos.
With Doris.
With Ann and Dorothy.
With Phyllis (who I finally met after hearing her name for years).
These are just the people that I have a picture of myself with ... pictures of many more Sasha friends will be included in my slideshow/album.

Thanks Francine for posting, for I can now see a few of my friends, too, even though I missed the festival this year.

Great pictures, Fran! It was such fun seeing everyone again. You are quite right, it's all wonderful, but the people are the very best part of the Festival experience!

I guessed that it was impossible to post quick updates this year - Boo is getting so tall and her being able to stay up later naturally has an impact on your time for blog posts during the festival. I'm looking forward to your album of photos once you can find the time to sort them and share them. So good in the meantime to see some of you enjoying each other's company at the festival.

thanks so much for posting. Your posts are the next best thing to attending. I'm looking forward to see what/who else was there. Your time is greatly appreciated.

So glad you had more time to socialise in the evenings this year. Boo has changed so much! She's a real young lady now and it is great that you have a shared interest.

I really look forward to seeing your photographic records of each festival. Thank you!

It only right that you enjoy your time at the festival now Boo is old enough to stay up and give you time to share with all the other festival people. I found at the UK one, you barely have time to catch up or meet everyone, the time goes so quick.
I look forward to seeing your photo record when you have time to add it to your blog.
Thanks for taking the time to record it all for us :)
